Yesterday, Matt Harvey actually began to look like Matt Harvey. Coming into the game with a 3-7 record and a 6.08 ERA, Harvey shut down the White Sox, tossing seven scoreless innings while allowing just two hits to move his record to 4-7.

Before the game, we spoke to Mets reporter Adam Rubin about Harvey's prior struggles and also asked him about Noah Syndergaard's ejection this weekend for throwing behind Chase Utley.

What did he make of the situation and why did the Mets wait so long for retribution against Utley?

Furthermore, the Mets honored the 1986 championship team this weekend. What was that ceremony and celebration like?

Because I spent this Saturday at the Hall of Fame Classic in Cooperstown, I asked Rubin who his favorite Mets to cover have been.

And with yesterday being Memorial Day, Rubin was off: What does a beat reporter do on an off day?
